Christmas Books and Toys For Intentional Families

Christmas Books and Toys

I’m excited about Christmas! We have traveled away from home the last two years, but this year we will be home, and we are planning lots of memory making around crafts, service, and family togetherness.

Our new Christmas Guide is full of inspiration for making sweet memories in your family. We include heartwarming literature, nature based crafts, and developmentally appropriate counting and phonics activities to create a Christmas to remember.


While most of our Christmas celebrations revolve around making memories together, we will also have a few gifts under the tree. We use the guide, “Something you want, something you need, something to wear, and something to read” to help keep our shopping simple and intentional.

These are a few items we love that fit into this formula.

Ever Earth Jr. Ramp Racer

Melissa and Doug Shape Sorting Clock

Melissa and Doug Fold and Go Dollhouse

Melissa and Doug Multi Craft Knitting Loom

Paper Making Kit

Holiday Pajamas

We’ve also loved experiences and subscriptions for gifts that keep on giving. The last two years we’ve forgone presents in exchange for exciting adventures and this year we are enjoying fun monthly boxes from Kiwi Crate.

Although you will be inundated by opportunities to buy and spend this season, we want you to know that the most wonderful gift you can give your child is yourself. As you read to your child, bake favorite holiday treats, and just hang out, you are building into your child the knowledge that they are a delightful human, and people who feel delighted in, have the confidence to make the world a better place.
